romney's 191. in ohio a public policy polling survey shows that president obama is leading by 4 percentage points, plus yesterday a columbus dispatch poll had the president up nine points. so let's give those 18 electoral votes to president obama, brings him to 255 and romney 191. in florida a poll shows president obama leading by 1 percentage point. that's until the margin of error, so we'll keep those as a toss up at yellow. out in iowa -- again these are all polls out today -- in iowa there was a we ask america poll showing president obama 44%. we'll give the president those electoral votes. things are looking better, though, for mitt romney in north carolina. in north carolina the arg poll shows romney leading 50-46%. and a ppp poll out today that shows it all even. so we'll keep that state in the toss-up column. there are 36 days until the election. this election actually despite everything you are hearing it is still up in the air. so don't count your chickens folk. back with us from washington, d.c. is peter fenn, and joining me here inside "the war room," duf sundheim. duf, let me

is the truth. president obama has the longest stretch of manufacturing job gains -- get this wait for it -- in almost two decades. since 2000 when president bush came into office, the manufacturing sector went into a steep slide, but since 2010, that slide has turned around. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s., according to that study, nearly $1 trillion. all right. now the third debate topic, and the third myth that is -- we are debunking here health you will hear this over and over again. you have heard it. the memo reads $716 billion will be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing

hd to barack obama? >> call bill clinton every morning. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: that's newt gingrich offering president obama some unsolicited advice. meanwhile the obama and romney campaigns are managing expectations. even the most ardent democrat would admit that president obama isn't the best debater. but according to beth myers . . . >> jennifer: and then president obama's top political advisor is just as glowing about mitt romney . . . they are so funny, my opponent he is abe lincoln and daniel webster all rolled into one. isn't that kind of weird hearing the campaign say such nice things about their opponents? believe me it's not going to last and it's all part of managing expectations before the debate. for more i'm joined by one of the country's foremost experts on the subject. samuel popkin who is a professor of political science at the university of san diego. he has worked on campaigns going back to the 1970s, and he is also the author of "the candidate." welcome back inside "the war room," profez or. >> it's a pleasure to be back with you governor. >> jennifer: a

-- george w. bush? >> i think the numbers are still relatively close, obama shouldn't celebrate too much because he is only at 50% favorability. that said i think it's important to look at the trend. the question is will the trend hold? >> jennifer: right. karl an article that was in "politico" today actually lays the blame of mitt romney's flailing candidacy solely at mitt romney's feet. do you agree with that? >> in part. if mitt romney's, you know message that's getting out there -- i think his big mistake was thinking he could push this extremely conservative agenda and get elected president. but he is only reflects the modern republican party that is controlled by the tea party at the moment. and that's one of the reasons he is having such troubles this time around. >> jennifer: yeah i think the effort to blame mitt romney for this is part of the scapegoating beginning right now. the republican party is to blame for the ridiculous positions that the mitt romney platform and the republican party platform holds. now let me ask you, cheryl because we're seeing some excitement in iowa w

president might have been wondering is that age-old question... >> obama: i repeat will the real mitt romney please stand up? >> jennifer: will he stand up? unfortunately, the real mitt romney has stood up and here's what he's saying. this is what mitt romney is saying. of course i believe in all of these things! medicare, work for the employed, tax cuts for the middle class. saving homes cross my heart and hope to die. i, mitt romney, believe in all of these things. but i do not like the way the present administration is doing them. so just turn them over to me and i will do all of them. i will do more of them. i will do them better and the doing of them will not cost anybody anything. now, mitt romney would surely win the golden pinocchio. suffice it to say he told so many whoppers, too many to recount here. we're going to air our top mitt debate lies throughout tonight's show. let's start with the biggy. taxes. >> romney: first of all, i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. my view is we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. my number one principle is there w

didn't really just say that bureau of labor statistics is cooking the books for president obama would you. then he doubled down on it on tv. >> it just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than -- any surge since 1983 a month before the election. i leave it to you to do all of the analysis. these numbers defy logic. you don't think it is coincidental that we have got the biggest surge since 1983 in the job surge? come on, chris. >> jennifer: jack, jack jack. how the mighty have fallen. they don't like the data, so instead of re-examine mining their ideas, they are conjuring up conspiracies that wouldn't pass the x-files. this nonsense almost isn't even worth a response except unchecked fox news might turn it into, quote unquote, fact. the retail is this the economy is headed in the right direction, and that -- and that sadly is a fact you can trust. for some actual analysis and perspective and context, we are going to turn to laura tyson who is the former chair of economic advise source and we are excited because you also current tv's economic advisor. thank you so much for j

obama do the same day of a terror attack on american citizens? he campaigned in las vegas. then at the annual u.n. meeting where rogue nations are calling for a new world order obama snout key allies and skipped meetings with world leaders so he could be on tv. president obama needs to learn being president isn't just about being on tv and protecting your job, it's about leadership. it's time for a president who gets it. >> jennifer: so will it work? will that ad work? will the october surprise work? for more on all of this, i'm joined by washington from democratic pollster salinda lake. so glad to you have back inside "the war room." thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. so salon is reporting that republicans plan to unleash that october offensive attacking the president as weak on national security and that they're going to allege that the obama administration had positive intelligence that there was going to be a terrorist attack in libya. is that attack going to work? >> not at all. in fact, what's interesting is in the last week, when the

points behind barack obama right now. is that the same kind of polling you guys are finding with your internal? >> it is not consistent with our polling. >> jennifer: when abc's david muir asked mitt romney about polls that showed his 47% comment had actually hurt him mitt romney comes naturally. he lied about it. >> well, i'm very pleased with some polls. less so with other polls but frankly at this early stage polls go up and polls go down. as you look at the national polls, you see i'm tied in the national polls. >> jennifer: in fact, it is just not true. the latest national gallup poll from today has the president up by 6 points. gallup that far left, skewed organization. but there does seem to be little room for reality in the current republican party. so the polls themselves have become the latest right wing scapegoat. so today fox news picked up the theme. >> are the swing states really swinging toward the president or could there possibly be some skewing going on by the media the left-based mainstream media? why would they do that? well, two reasons. one perhaps to keep mitt r

tonight from houston to discuss the debates ahead of tomorrow's verbal bout between president obama and governor romney is douglas brinkley. douglas is a presidential historian. rice university professor and author of the new book "cronkite." welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks, governor. thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. so is it just me or do you also think that tomorrow's debate is being pumped than any other debate at least in my memory? >> well, i think so because it seems like it has been a longer campaign right? the media now -- every day really every second, people are watching what obama and romney says. it is the dominant story. i think people are feeling this is one of those elections of a lifetime which vision for america to go to. so it is a lot of hype for this one and there is a feeling now with barack obama up in the polls, three points nationally but up in some -- almost all of the swing states he might be able to close the deal with the american people tomorrow night if he has a good performance. on the other hand, as governor chris christie sai

hd m last night. we're at number three healthcare. romney has repeatedly said he would repeal obama care on day one and yet last night he said well, he truly wouldn't get rid of all of it. he would keep the most popular piece which is covering pre-existing conditions. >> romney: actually, it's a lengthy description but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> jennifer: then after the debate his top deputy eric fehrnstrom, the guy who said that the campaign would etch-a-sketch away its positions. fehrnstrom -- clarified mitt romney's position saying... >> jennifer: in other words mitt romney will not guarantee coverage for pre-existing conditions and you better hope that you live in the right state or that you're lucky enough to already have insurance. in fact, romney admitted the very same thing back in march to jay leno. >> romney: people with pre-existing conditions as long as they've been insured before, they will continue -- >> suppose they were never insured. >> if they're 45 years old and i need insurance because i have a heart disease. hey, guys, we c

president obama found out the other night in the debate. when you're explaining, you're losing. it seemed to be a clear differentiation. there's a difference people who don't support you electorally. there were parts of my district where i didn't get support but i was expected to be congressman for the entire district. i'd say during your time, there were certain areas of the straight that were republican strongholds, but yet you chose to be governor of all the people. i think mr. romney was making that comment as he prepares based on the verdict on the first tuesday following the first monday in november to become the first president. >> that's what he should have been saying. that's not what he actually said at the fundraiser. there were conservative members in the republican party who did support his 47% remarks when he came out saying yeah, that's the mitt romney we thought we elected. how does that play with them? >> i quite frankly don't think it's that big a deal, really, because we all know in an election campaign, the idea is you have your base. you turn out the base, but
